New Star will be hosting their second annual 16 Park Christmas Shop on Sunday, December 13th. That means that this Sunday and next are the last two opportunities to donate toys! The Christmas Shop allows parents to purchase toys for their children at a reduced rate, believing that there is great joy for the families in contributing to the gifts. Items in the store will be geared towards kids ages 3-16. New Star will begin collecting donations this week. You can drop your items off in the green bin in the Welcome Center on Sunday or in the Youth Room during the week. If you'd like to help but can't squeeze in a shopping trip this season, Will and Caroline will accept cash and gift card donations that will be used to purchase toys for the shop. If this is your preferred method, please be sure to make this donation early so Will & Caroline have time to shop. Contact Caroline for more information [Caroline@Redeemindy.org].
